My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Hello...I recently posted a photo of the grave stone of a Farnham in Killingworth n Find A Grave. It is listed at Old Southwest Cemetery....on River road in Killingworth. Someone had put in a request for it. I am going back this summer to look for Mindwell Farnham. I just found this blog accidently while looking for something else having to do with another Killingworth, Ct family. But since I am here I thought I should share! all the best, Kristen

Hi Kristen, How nice of you to write. There were a lot of Farnhams in Killingworth, I imagine all were related in some way. FAG has a listing of 59 Farnhams, so I don't know which one you took. I want to go back and get one for Abner who is buried in Indian River Cem. Gotta say, I love that area. Anyway, thanks for taking FAG photos, we all appreciate them.
